Subject: Lyr Add: TRAVELING BLUES (Jimmie Rodgers)
Reminded me of Jimmie Rodgers' "Traveling Blues." Don't know if this might be what you're after, but here tis:

I had a dream last night I thought my good gal had gone
Well I woke up this morning she really had done me wrong
I know it's not fair but my good gal has done caught air

I'm goin' away leavin' today I'm gonna bring my baby back
If that eight wheel driver don't jump the railroad track
I take her from that man gonna bring her home if I can

My gal's been triflin' round about a week I know
Several of my friends just told me so and so
She's findin' new man and now I can't understand

So I'm goin' away...

Well it's true my baby's gone I know it won't be long
We'll both be on that train my baby's coming home again
She's been triflin' round but now she has turned him down

Yeah I'm goin' away...
